A dental cleaning every six months is the foundation for good oral health. We gently remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth, taking great care in ensuring we don't harm your teeth and gums in the process.
*First, we use an ultrasonic device that emits vibrations to loosen any large pieces of tartar buildup. This keeps your cleanings comfortable, as less scraping is required.
*Second, we incorporate hand tools to remove smaller tartar deposits and smooth the tooth's surface.
*Finally, we give your teeth a fresh polish once the surfaces are cleaned. Your teeth will look and feel fantastic!
Your Torrance general dentist offers other services to keep your oral health in top shape. A few others include:
*Custom Mouthguards – If you're an active person, a mouthguard is recommended to protect your lips, gums, and teeth. A properly fitted mouthguard can reduce the severity of expensive dental injuries during physical activities.
*Root Canal Treatment – This is necessary when tooth decay has reached the nerve or the tooth has become infected. After the root canal is finished, we will place a dental crown or filling on the tooth for protection and return the tooth to its normal function.
*Tooth Extractions – We will always try to save your natural teeth. But sometimes, a badly damaged or decaying tooth cannot be saved. In that case, we will use restorative procedures and anesthesia to gently remove it.
